As there are millions of sites, when you left your job, were you sure of this? or you went ahead with "dekha jayega attitude" (lets see whatever happens) or what...? as in with what kinda attitude you had...? tell us in more brief, really i am quite inspired.
When I left the job I only had go4expert.com as website but I had experience with websites and that made me think I can be successful with other websites as well. Now I have one more coming up after MBAGuys.net

Good people to talk with. I have seen many good sites where if you ask something very silly people tend to get furious. I hated that.

I always like to share this. Go4Expert.com I launched because I wanted to share my articles and programs I did in my 4 years of Engineering to the world and I tried doing them into many sites like codeguru / codeproject but no one respected just the code and had so much of guidelines to follow that I got irritated and though would do them on my own site. As I was on many forums like sitepoint / codeguru though would use vBulletin because I really liked it but use it for Articles. After so much of threads being submitted as articles I moved them into forum and forum section came into existence and then to add to it all others that you see now.

To start with Go4Expert.com have forums which are mainly in B.Tech in IT but slowly it added on areas like Web Development ( Because I started learning it ) and Ethical Hacking, Web Hosting , Hardware because users requested to them like RE by you.

Go4Expert.com is never aimed at making money when started and not till date. The advertisement you see is mainly to handle the server cost ( We are upgrading servers too often now ) and mostly I donate to Open Source / Articles and other competitions.
